Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.

  • Lovely place to be quiet in the North of Dublin city. The legend is sad but the park is beautiful. Highly recommended for tourists.
  • Nive place to seat, relax and unwind. Perhaps if incorporated with a bit of music that would be nice!
  • You won't find many people here so it can be quite nice after a walk to sit and enjoy the reflection pool.
  • Very interesting place. Loved walking through it. A must visit
  • It was a beautiful and spiritual experience to see this and be able to appreciate some of Ireland's history and to remember those who gave their lives for the cause of freedom. I'm an American so I'm sure I can't fully fathom this experience but nonetheless, it was beautiful and I recommend stopping by this place.
